Experience With MahaPeriyava By: Sri Chandramouli Mama – Part 1

For us, Periyava is ‘Umachi (who became) Thatha’…
For Chandramouli mama, Periyava is ‘Thatha (who is) Umachi’ !!!

Sri Chandramouli mama – son of Mani Sastrigal is the grand son of Sri Ganapathi Sastrigal (MahaPeriyava’s Purvaasharama brother).

His wife Smt Mangalam comes from the lineage of “Kalavai Periyava”. Kalavai Periyava is her great grand mother’s Periyappa in Purvaasharama.

It is quite a blessing to hear experiences from MahaPeriyava’s (Purvaasharama) family. Many incidents like :

  • Vazhai Thar
  • Battery Charger
  • Kanya Poojai directly by MahaPeriyava
  • Periyava Prasadam distribution to all hospitals
  • Vinayaka Chathurthi Poojai after mama’s father – Sri Mani Sastrigal’s tragic train accident

Mama has done Vinayaka Chathurthi Poojai from 1972 to 1993 in presence of MahaPeriyava. Mami has been Kanya Ponnu for Navarathri Poojai done by MahaPeriyava…

பரமேஸ்வரன் கண்ணால நம்ம பண்ணற  பூஜை பாக்கறதும் … பரமேஸ்வரன் கையால் நமக்கு பூஜை பண்றதும் – அஹா, என்ன பாக்யம் … என்ன பாக்யம் !!!

    One of the great interview. Blessed to see the lineage of kalavai periyavaa and mahaperiyavaa. We never ask anything to periyava. It is only battery charge at his presence. My father Only bring vibuthi from madam. Hope in one of the interview of devotee he says sri periyavaa himself says that only vibuthi is the only thing i took from mutt.Sivaraman Anna u are making us to immerse in periyava by your great effort. Eagerly waiting for the remaining parts. Kind request please do collect all the family details of Sri periyavaa brothers.

    Sivaraman anna thank you for taking the time and effort to share these wonderful experiences of devotees. Every time I watch these videos i feel more and more closer to Mahaperiyava’s Charanaarvindham.. It’s unfortunate that i didn’t have a chance to get the darisanam of Mahaperiyava in person. Please write more about Sri Sri Kalavai periyava.. Thank you for all you do.

    Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara sankara.
